Many rugged winter jackets look like unflattering sleeping bags, but not Helly Hansen’s Senja Insulated Winter Parka. The adjustable waist cinches to keep your shape defined (and together with the adjustable hood provides a custom fit).

Plenty of pockets, including those with a comfortable brushed lining, will keep your things safe and your hands warm. 100% recycled synthetic down-feel insulation is better than down for travel because it packs down compactly. The parka is wind and water resistant to cope with any kind of weather.

Available in five eye-catching colors (including a gorgeous green), this jacket will keep you stylish all winter long.

If you’re always cold in the winter, you’ll want as much coverage as possible in the boots section. Fortunately, over-the-knee boots are very much in fashion at the moment, allowing you to add extra warmth to more than half of your leg.

Franco Sarto’s Haleen leather over-the-knee boots will keep you warm and dry (but still looking stylish) even on cold days. The side zipper makes it easy to get these tall boots on and off, and a stacked block heel will keep you stable even on icy pavements.

Royal Robbins’ Backcountry Pro Winter Leggings look like sleek black tights, but hide a warm secret – a fleece-lined interior. The versatile look of leggings means you can wear them comfortably as they are on a hike or layer them under a dress for a more formal look.

Two hand pockets plus a secure zip pocket mean these leggings have three more pockets than most women’s leggings.
